In AISC [21], the axial compression member is considered to be the overall stability of the member, the strength of the concrete is converted into the steel, the nominal compressive strength [f.sub.cr] of the steel is obtained, and the bearing capacity of the concrete-filled steel tubular member is calculated from [f.sub.cr], [f.sub.ys] is the yield limit of steel, [f.sub.ck] means the compressive strength of concrete cylinder, [A.sub.s] is the cross-sectional area of steel pipe, [A.sub.c] is the cross-sectional area of concrete, and [[lambda].sub.c] is the ratio of slenderness to slenderness.
